It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

Esther Additions E and F

Addition E comes after Haman's plot to destroy the Jews is overturned. The king decrees that the Jews rather than being dangerously disloyal are instead followers of the most righteous laws and are the children of the living God.

Addition F quotes Mordecai's reaction to this change in the royal attitude which he attributes to God's care.

Who is the hero of this story--Mordecai or Ether?

Tomorrow's reading is the first 2 chapters of the Wisdom of Solomon.
